Welcome back! It seems our conversation on lab waste has sparked some interest in the community. One reader contacted us to ask how other hospitals handle safe waste disposal, whereas another specifically asks how well-resourced hospitals dispose of their formalin waste. Do you have a disposal protocol that you’d be happy to share? Please send it our way and we’ll make sure it reaches the interested parties!

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
